In Honor of Sen. Kennedy - Call Sen. Begich TODAY - and Demand He Support MEANINGFUL Health Care Reform

One year ago today, Sen. Mark Begich defeated Alaska's most enduring muckraker, Ray Metcalfe, in the Alaska Democratic Party Primary. This morning, the fiercest advocate for meaningful health care reform, Teddy Kennedy, passed away, his final mission unfinished.

Ray Metcalfe and I would like to honor Kennedy's memory, by asking you to call, email, fax or VISIT one of Sen. Begich's Alaska offices today, and demand he listen to Alaskan Democrats, who overwhelmingly want either a single payer health care system or - at least - the availability in the final bill, of a public option that would put pressure on insurance corporations to cut costs.
